Building and Sustaining a Culture of Quality
As we develop as leaders, we accumulate experiences that will benefit not only ourselves but others as well. Unfortunately, we often forget our own stories or we are not able to recall them when we need them. Even if we can recall our own stories, we may not understand their significance or meaning nor have a set method for communicating our stories to others. What does work is using a methodology to document our own stories in such a manner that our stories have meaning and impact. This methodology links our own stories to recognizable stories of others and to actions that help you, and others, continue to improve their abilities.
This session will introduce the leadership journey card (LJC) methodology with examples of LJCs. It will also help individuals understand the importance of recording their own stories, and will help individuals begin the process of developing their own LJCs.
Leaders tell stories to illustrate points of view, to guide behaviors, and to demonstrate that success and failure are learning opportunities. LJCs are a way to help people learn from the experiences of others.
